I am an accredited Sexual Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor with the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The Colleges of the UKCP are currently responsible for regulating psychotherapists in the UK as set out by the government White Paper (Health Professionals Council 2012).
I have a doctorate in philosophy investigating human sexuality and applied psychoanalysis. I am an independent practitioner specialising in the treatment of deviant online use. I provide Psychological Reports for the Courts and regularly attend Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements meetings and liaise with Criminal Justice Social Work in the assessment of risk. I am a member of the National Organisation for the Treatment of Abusers and a member of the International Association for Forensic Psychotherapy. I am a full member of the Society of Expert Witnesses and have written expert witness reports for the courts.
I have given talks regarding the assessment and treatment of illegal online use and frequently attend professional development training in this field.
